Storyline

An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again...and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Vrataski take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy! Written by Warner Bros. Pictures

Trivia

The melee weapon Rita uses is not from the aircraft that is used to drop the soldiers during operation Downfall. It may be modeled from a different aircraft that has been built in the movie but not in real life. Bell Boeing labels aircraft panels, and items normally removed a lot during maintenance to aid with easy re-install, meaning the "POS 53" could be the position of the blade on it's aircraft. The serial number painted does not correspond to any present aircraft or its assemblies. The manufacture or Weight and Balance Plate says UDF (United Defense Force) the name of the army, where as normal blades will have the manufactures name here not the military that uses it. Any 2014 ,and earlier, tail or main rotor blades would be a horrible weapon and destroyed the first time it hit something. See more »

While Cage is waiting for Sergeant Farrell to tell him the number of push-ups he looks back, we see the two APCs coming straight towards him. After he starts doing the push-ups they show us the two APCs again, but now the second looks as if it just turned in from the corner. See more »

This year's most surprising blockbuster movie so far
28 May 2014 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

With thrilling action sequences, clever sense of humor and surprisingly intellectual storyline, "Edge of Tomorrow" shows a real deal of summer blockbuster movie and proves itself beyond expectation especially after unconvincing trailers. Perhaps the theme and alien character looks familiar with some popular sci-fi movies but it's still combined perfectly as an entertainment. Doug Liman as director smartly exploited 're-setting the day' aspect without making it complicated and escaping it from being dull with some quality combat moments also inserting lovable drama that is commanded by memorable chemistry from Tom Cruise and Emilly Blunt have carried whole scenes in it. Overall "Edge of Tomorrow" feels more satisfying than it might have been in any ways and shows how the non-sequel-reboot blockbuster movie should be done. It's definitely much fun than I have ever imagined and pleasurable to re-watch it over and over again.
